This actually was my "after" pic from losing 30lbs. I lost 14" in 2mos (Dec 1 to Feb 1) after being strictly paleo. I've been eating primal for over 6mos. I've been gluten-free for over a year.

You look great. I saw you post about being paleo on the main board a few days ago. I love it too. I have had unexplained infertility for years (ds is and ivf baby) and I did a paleo challenge in august and got pregnant (chemical). Thought nothing of it, went back to eating grains and struggling with infertility. Then in december, I read that people who do paleo are super fertile and thought maybe I should try again. Guess what, pregnant the first month.

I bet you will have a very healthy pregnancy

You look great! and could you tell me what exactly paleo is? I've heard of it and know enough to know it is an alternative sort of eating but that is about it.

It's pretty much clean eating.... veggies, fruit, meat, nuts.... no grains, no dairy. Simple. I do have some dairy like heavy cream in my coffee or butter. This is the best site I've found that explains the paleo/primal way of eating...

what an awesome way to chronicle your pregnancy! I love that picture, and the words to go with it! I'm so tempted to be a copy cat.

So pretty! You are very creative! If you mind me asking, how did you make your pic like that? I'd love to something like that with this baby's month to month pics when he or she is born.

I set up a camera on a tripod and set the timer for each shot. I used Photoshop to do a double exposure. I learned from this one, though. You can see the seam in the pic and it was because I didn't stand far enough over. The next one will be better. I was thinking to change it up and have a different background for each shot. I'm doing it every 2w.

Thanks for the feedback, ladies!

I agree your pictures are awesome! you should have them printed and put them in an album for your baby book...
I thought very hard about being creative but it took me three days just to feel good enough to take a picture last week that I just couldn't think that hard on doing something cute like that.
